"I think the first Digitiphonies were actually written at the end of the 20th Century - eg. works like Deep Purple's "Concerto for Group and Orchestra" and Jeff Wayne's "War of the Worlds" amongst others (even the "Dr. Who" Theme - especially in it's 21st century reincarnation, but with it's roots firmly in the first BBC Radiophonic Workshop version... it's a bit short though..). For sure, composers all around the world are writing works that could be described as Digitiphonies and have been for some years, though perhaps not so defined, nor so long."
